Did she sing backup for Aretha? Doesn't Aretha give her a shout out on Try Matty's?

Almeda sang background on Aretha's SPIRIT IN THE DARK album. I believe she was also managed by Aretha at one time.

There is a line in TRY MATTY'S where Aretha sings 'What's happening, Meda? I wonder are you on your way to Matty's, this morning?" Until now, I never knew who she was referring to. But it could be Almeda.

I thought so, Reese. You're firing on all cylinders as usual, man.
I thought the name was misspelled.

Hi motownmorph: Great pic.Glad she made it to the UK.

Thanks to Kamasu and Reese for the info.

Apparently her real name is Almeta Latimer Roseman (from a net search).

((((Shrugs)))) I wouldn't know.

I referred to the professional spelling, the way I've seen it spelled numerous times.
But I figured it was the same individual.
